MMPR: The Movie

  • Alpha told the teens that the power (see "Monolith") on the distant planet of Phaedos might be able to save Zordon, but that all who had tried for the power (see "Monolith") had perished.
  • Phaedos was dark green and reddish-brown, with a black spot; it had two white moons.
  • Aisha discovered the skeleton of a harnessed dinosaur creature, roughly horse-sized, on the beach where the teens arrived on Phaedos.
  • Dulcea led the teens through a savannah, then to the desert mountains, in the top of which were the ancient ruins of the Ninjetti Temple.
  • The ruins of the Ninjetti Temple overlooked the Neola Jungle, beyond which was an enormous monolith, inside which awaited "the power of the universe."
  • The teens walked down what was probably a mountainside just past the ruins; then they walked through an arid plains area with reddish earth to get to the jungle.
  • The trees in the jungle were particularly large.
  • The teens came upon an area in the jungle filled with dinosaur skeletons; one of the dinosaur skeletons, looking a bit like a triceratops, tried to hit Billy with its tail, then got up and charged the teens; its rampage ended when Tommy removed a bone from its neck, causing it to completely fall apart.
  • When Adam kicked a Gatekeeper into a pond near the monolith, the monster steamed and may have disintegrated; whether the pond was caustic or whether the Gatekeepers were vulnerable to ordinary water is unknown.

  • According to Alpha, Phaedos was located somewhere beyond the Hyperion Constellation.
  • At a campsite, the teens drank from clay mugs and ate squirbs, live eel-like creatures which tasted better with dried weevils, brown flakes; the next morning, they would eat berries on a trail.
  • Dulcea had a pet anteater creature named Snoggle which could talk in an alien language.

    MMPR: The Movie

  • On Phaedos, Dulcea led the teens through a savannah, then to the desert mountains, in the top of which were the ancient ruins of the Ninjetti Temple.
  • The ruins overlooked the Neola Jungle, beyond which was an enormous monolith, inside which awaited "the power of the universe."
  • That night on Phaedos, there was a campfire burning in the center of the ruins.
  • Engraved lines in the ground of the ruins bore the same large circle and pie slices which were on the floor of the Command Center's central ring.

    MMPR: The Movie

  • Alpha told the teens that the power on the distant planet of Phaedos might be able to save Zordon, but that all who had tried for the power on Phaedos had perished.
  • Watching the teens teleport from Earth, Rita knew that they were seeking the Great Power.
  • The ruins of the Ninjetti Temple overlooked the Neola Jungle, beyond which was an enormous monolith, inside which awaited the "power of the universe."
  • Dulcea said that the monolith was heavily guarded against intruders, and that no one had ever survived an attempt to reach it.
  • When Aisha asked how they could survive the journey to the monolith while all others had died, Dulcea told them they were chosen by Zordon and that she had faith in his wisdom.
  • There was apparently a temple built into the bottom of the monolith; in the front wall of the temple were four statues which came to life as Gatekeepers which attacked intruders.
  • Near the monolith was water falling down from above into a pond.
  • When the final Gatekeeper was destroyed (although one of the four had been merely buried by rocks), the ground began to quake, and the jungle grew dark; the front of the temple then slid open, and a triangular stone structure slowly slid out, backlit by bright light.
  • At the bottom of the stone triangle were two lines of alien writing; there was a large circular golden insignia of the six ninja animals together, on the front of the triangle.
  • When the Great Power was released from the monolith, golden miniature Ninjazords emerged from the ninja animal insignia on the monolith's stone triangle structure, flew around the teens, and then entered the respective Ninjetti suits' chest symbols, suiting the Rangers back up in their armored suits; the old animal symbols were now replaced with the ninja animals' symbols.
  • On Tommy's reminder that "to those who possess the Great Power, all things are possible," the helmetless Rangers stood around Zordon's crystal bed and held their arms up, almost fingertip to fingertip; the Rangers' chest symbols glowed with gold light, then the animal symbols projected forward into Zordon; after specks of white light repaired the Command Center (and made Alpha shiny again), the specks all merged and flowed into Zordon's chest, making him gasp back to life.

  • The Great Power, described as a mythological power beyond all comprehension, was impossible to obtain, according to legend, and the Master Warrior on Phaedos was the only person who knew its secrets.
  • The Great Power originated in another time and another dimension, brought to Phaedos long ago by the Nathadians, a people whose only surviving descendant was Dulcea.
  • The Nathadians had built an impenetrable stone monolith to store the power and keep it from their enemies; for thousands of years, beings from all over the universe had tried to obtain it, and all had died.
  • According to Dulcea, the only way to obtain the Great Power was to achieve the highest state of being, by learning the ancient art of Ninjetti, the genesis of what would be known as the Ninja on Earth; it was the perfect union of mind, body and spirit.
  • Without the power of the Ninjetti, the Great Power would destroy the teens.
